FRAME OFF RESTORED, REBUILT 390 V8, AUTO, A/C, PS/B, FRONT DISC, NICE SHORT BED!

Vintage trucks often don't get the love and attention they deserve, but someone has clearly invested heavily in this 1971 Ford F-100 Ranger short bed pickup. With a laser straight body and slick resto-mod curb appeal, there can't be many out there that look sharper. There's also a great-running, big block 390 V8 running the show, a tastefully upgraded A/C interior, and a host of choice options, resulting in one of the coolest Bumpsides we've ever featured at Streetside Classics.

Vintage pickup body panels don't often look this laser straight fresh off the press, never mind more than 50 years later. Clearly, the builders invested a sizable pile of cash and many hours of spare time in this beautiful truck, and the result of that frame-off restoration is very impressive. This shade of Green Metallic obviously isn't the truck's original color, although it does look somewhat similar to the Winter Green color option that was offered on the F-100 a year later - regardless of authenticity we think it was a unique choice that really works well over the vintage hauler's original bodywork. The deep, lustrous paint is a considerable improvement from anything the factory offered in '71 and the finish ... Please ask for the full description.

FRAME OFF RESTORED, REBUILT 390 V8, AUTO, A/C, PS/B, FRONT DISC, NICE SHORT BED!

Vintage trucks often don't get the love and attention they deserve, but someone has clearly invested heavily in this 1971 Ford F-100 Ranger short bed pickup. With a laser straight body and slick resto-mod curb appeal, there can't be many out there that look sharper. There's also a great-running, big block 390 V8 running the show, a tastefully upgraded A/C interior, and a host of choice options, resulting in one of the coolest Bumpsides we've ever featured at Streetside Classics.

Vintage pickup body panels don't often look this laser straight fresh off the press, never mind more than 50 years later. Clearly, the builders invested a sizable pile of cash and many hours of spare time in this beautiful truck, and the result of that frame-off restoration is very impressive. This shade of Green Metallic obviously isn't the truck's original color, although it does look somewhat similar to the Winter Green color option that was offered on the F-100 a year later - regardless of authenticity we think it was a unique choice that really works well over the vintage hauler's original bodywork. The deep, lustrous paint is a considerable improvement from anything the factory offered in '71 and the finish was done to a very high driver-quality standard. Note how the numerous reflections are crisp and clear in the paint, how well the doors fit, and the very crisp look of the dramatic color overall. Sure, there are a few very minor signs of use and age (mostly concentrated in a couple minor spots on the hood), but those are completely forgivable simply because the sucker looks flat-out awesome overall. If you're a fan of these 5th generation F-series trucks (and who isn't?), you know that the handsome good looks come from a simple design that uses bright details to get the point across. Custom touches include the blacked-out grille up front, modern projector-style headlights, a body deleted of all badges, and the smoothed roll pan that was added out back in place of the stock bumper. This low-slung beauty also includes a fully painted bed that you might be hesitant to use simply because it's just about as well-finished as the exterior bodywork.

Since he was obviously aiming high, the builder who restored this truck installed a tasteful black interior to complement the light-colored bodywork, a combination that always works. For extra comfort, the bench seat was covered with a fresh cloth-and-vinyl seat cover that's far more high-end that anything you got in 1971, and the plush black carpets on the floor tie the interior together and are protected with vinyl Ford mats. The door panels are nicely upholstered in matching black vinyl, not just painted steel, which was standard equipment on all pickups back in the day, and there's a fresh headliner above to match. This F-100 offers a full complement of functional gauges in the unique oval-shaped instrument panel, with Ranger-spec woodgrain applique accents all around, and a trio of auxiliary units was installed underneath to help keep an eye on the big block under the hood. A fresh black pad atop the dash looks great and a taut headliner adorning the roof adds to the upscale feel inside, and an under-dash R134a A/C unit was neatly incorporated and blows cold. The sporty, wood-rimmed steering wheel offers plenty of leverage for those poor souls who weren't smart enough to order power steering (don't worry, this truck is well-equipped), and it's joined on the tilt column with the shifter for the automatic transmission below. And if the rumble of the big block under the hood isn't enough for your ears, a Kenwood AM/FM/CD/AUX head unit was installed in the center of the dash to provide entertainment.

If you want lots of horsepower and huge torque in your pickup, the 390 V8 in this one is more than happy to oblige. Reportedly rebuilt and perfectly affixed inside the engine bay, it cackles like it belongs in a Mustang Mach 1 and is dressed like it should be, too, with Ford Blue valve covers and a matching open-element air cleaner. All the good stuff is inside the block, with a stock intake and a Weber carburetor on top, as well as a set of stock-style exhaust headers at the flanks that help it breathe. It's a neat fit in the F-100's engine bay and it definitely has a period-perfect look that feels right in between the blacked-out inner fenders and clean firewall. Ford Blue engine enamel brightens things up on the engine itself and there are newer tune-up parts everywhere you look, including a big aluminum radiator up front that keeps the big block nice and cool. A 3-speed automatic transmission mates to the engine perfectly, and with a late-model Crown Victoria front clip, power rack-and-pinion steering, and power front disc brakes, the ride is a good one each time out. The frame and running gear are in great condition underneath thanks to the thorough frame-off restoration completed not long ago, and there's a dual exhaust system with Thrush mufflers that sounds great. Flashy late-model Ford wheels strike the right resto-mod tone and carry 275/40/18 front and 295/45/18 rear Hankook radials.

Go ahead, try to find a cleaner Bumpside F-100 with killer looks like this. Or you could just buy this one and save yourself some time. Call today!
